Service Procedure

 

  1. Position the vehicle on a suitable lift.

 

  1. Open the hood. Install a battery charger and verify that the charging rate provides 13.0 to 13.5 volts.  Set the battery charger timer (if so equipped) to continuous charge.

 

  1. Connect the wiTECH micro pod II to the vehicle data link connector.

 

  1. Place the ignition in the “RUN” position.

 

  1. Open the wiTECH 2.0 website.

 

  1. Enter your “User id” and “Password” and your “Dealer Code”, then select “Sign In” at the bottom of the screen.  Click “Accept”.

 

  1. From the “Vehicle Selection” screen, select the appropriate vehicle.

 

  1. From the “Action Items” screen, select the “Topology” tab.

 

  1. Select the “ABS” Icon.

 

  1. From the “ABS” screen, select the “Miscellaneous Functions” menu and start the “Brembo® information CCM service reset” procedure for rear disc replacement.

 

Electrical System Disconnection:

 

  1. Raise all electrical windows to the upper stop position.

 

NOTE:  Make sure ALL the windows are closed fully.  Disconnecting the battery when the windows are in a position other than the upper end stop will entail the need to run the window end stop learning procedure.

 

  1. Open the luggage compartment lid and support it so it will not close.

 

CAUTION: While the battery is disconnected, make sure the luggage compartment lid does not close again, as it will not be possible to reopen it.

 

  1. To be able to reopen the luggage compartment lid, even if it accidentally closes with the battery disconnected, before disconnecting the battery it is necessary to unscrew the cap (1b), release the pull cord hooked onto it and leave it hanging out of the luggage compartment. Then, by working on the pull cord, an emergency luggage compartment lid lock release can  be obtained. The pull cord operates on the lever (1a) inside (Figure 1).

 

  1. Place the ignition in the “OFF” position and then remove the wiTECH micro pod II device and battery charger from the vehicle.

 

  1. The vehicle must remain powered down for at least 1 minute before taking further action.

 

  1. Working on the right side of the luggage compartment, turn the retainers (1a) counterclockwise to the end of their travel to release them, then remove the cover (1b) releasing the retainers in the areas (1c) (Figure 2).

 

  1. Press the release button (1a) and disconnect the negative cable (1b) from the battery post (1c) (Figure 3).

 

  1. Move the terminal out of the way and isolate it (1b) (Figure 3).

 

  1. If equipped with an Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS), disconnect the wire harness connector (2a) from the IBS (1c) (Figure 4).

 

Rear Brake Pads and Disc Removal for Both Sides of Vehicle:

 

WARNING: The presence of carbon fiber submerged in a ceramic matrix can produce dust (carbon) that is deposited in the disc pads and surfaces. This dust can cause skin irritation, redness and burns. The technician must use personal protective equipment to protect their health: gloves and mask.

 

  1. Remove both rear tire and wheel assemblies.

 

  1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector (1) to the electric parking brake gear motor (Figure 5).

 

  1. Remove and DISCARD the mounting bolts (2a) and remove the electric parking brake caliper (2b) (Figure 5).

 

  1. Disconnect the brake pad wear indicator electric harness connection (1) (Figure 6).

 

  1. Cut the tie strap and release the electrical harness from the support bracket (2) (Figure 6).

 

  1. Using a suitable punch, retract and remove the pad retaining pins (3) (Figure 6).

 

  1. Open the cap on the brake fluid reservoir and check the level.

 

NOTE: The piston retraction operations described here below increase the brake fluid level in the reservoir. Make sure the fluid level does not cause leakage.

 

  1. Retract the pistons from the brake caliper using a retractor or other suitable tool pressing on the worn pads.

 

NOTE: Piston retraction must be such so allow extracting the worn pads and then inserting the new ones.

 

  1. Remove the mounting bolts (1a) and remove the brake caliper (1b) complete with pads, without disconnecting the brake hose (Figure 7).

 

CAUTION: Securely support the brake caliper so it does not put stress on the brake hose.

 

  1. Remove the outer brake pad (1) (Figure 8).

 

  1. Remove the inner brake pad (1) (Figure 9).

 

NOTE: If the pads are stuck to the pistons, use a spatula or screwdriver and then extract the pads from the caliper. Be careful not to damage the pistons and the dust boots.

 

  1. Remove and DISCARD the brake caliper retaining clip (1) (Figure 10).

 

NOTE: The spring must always be replaced.

 

  1. Carefully clean the pad seat area using suitable materials and products (for example, a moist cloth).

 

CAUTION: Do not use products which could damage rubber parts, such as thinner, nitro thinner, petrol, etc.

 

  1. Check that there is no damage to the pistons or the dust boots.

 

  1. Remove the mounting bolts (1a) and remove the rear brake disc (1b) (Figure 11).

 

NOTE: Use the packaging from the NEW brake discs to return the recalled brake discs to Brembo. Failure to return the recalled brake discs will result in the cancellation of the refund claim.

 

Rear Brake Disc and Pads Installation for Both Sides of Vehicle:

 

  1. Place the NEW rear brake disc (1a) onto the wheel hub and tighten the M10 bolt (1b) to 7 N·m (62 In. Lbs.) (Figure 12).

 

NOTE: After install the CCM discs, measure the eccentricity of the disc-wheel hub assembly with a dial indicator. An eccentricity of more than 0.10 mm is not  acceptable. 

 

NOTE: If the eccentricity is greater than 0.10 mm, rotate the disc to another position (there are 5 available positions) to achieve the smallest eccentricity possible. 

 

NOTE: The eccentricity must be measured 10 mm from the disc’s outer edge, on the braking side. The correct eccentricity value is vital for stabilizing braking. If the eccentricity values are too high, it will result in abnormal wear and strong vibrations.

 

  1. Install some “MOLYKOTE Cu7439 Plus” grease to the brake pad sliding shoulders and a NEW brake caliper retaining spring in its housing (Figure 13).

 

  1. Install the NEW inner brake pad (2) in its housing, complete with wear sensor (2) (Figure 14).

 

NOTE: The arrow printed on the brake pad must be oriented in the direction of rotation of the disc when travelling forwards.

 

  1. Install the NEW outer brake pad (1) in its housing (Figure 15).

 

NOTE: The arrow printed on the brake pad must be oriented in the direction of rotation of the disc when travelling forwards.

 

  1. Install the brake pad retaining pins (1) (Figure 16).

 

  1. Position the brake caliper (1a) in its housing and set the brake pad retaining pins (1b) (Figure 17).

 

  1. Install the brake caliper M12 mounting bolts (2) and tighten the bolts to 105 N·m (77 Ft. Lbs.) (Figure 17).

 

  1. Connect the electrical harness connector to the pad wear sensor (3a), secure it to the bracket with a NEW cable tie (3b) (Figure 17).

 

  1. Pump brake pedal several times to set pads to caliper and brake rotor.

 

  1. Check that the brake fluid in the reservoir is at the maximum level, otherwise top off using the recommended fluid.

 

  1. Securely tighten the brake fluid reservoir cap on the brake fluid reservoir.

 

NOTE: The fluid in the reservoir should not exceed the MAX notch.

 

  1. Position the electric parking brake caliper (1a) in its housing and tighten the NEW M10 mounting bolts (1b) to 30 N·m + 45 degrees (22 Ft. Lbs. + 45 degrees) (Figure 18).

 

  1. Connect the electrical connection of the gear motor (2) (Figure 18).

 

  1. Position the rear wheel and tire assembly to the wheel hub and secure it tightening the M14 stud bolts to 120 N·m (89 Ft. Lbs.) (Figure 18).

 

Electrical System Connection:

 

  1. Connect the battery negative cable (1b) onto the post (1c) (Figure 19).

 

  1. If equipped with an Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS), connect the IBS connector (Figure 20).
